A 30 day's buffer, free of alcohol and drug use will give you:
1. a good chance to stay alive
2. a good chance to stay clean
3. your body after the withdrawl needs time to recover
4. time to get away from enablers
5. proof that you really want to get better
perhaps there is a misconception between dr. sober companion and rehab facilities, that may confuse you about who we are.
dr. sober companion would like to clear things up right now.
When we at dr. sober companion say: "we recommend rehab facilities", we say this for the explicit purpose of keeping you alive.
You must stay clean for 30 days, before we will accept you as a client.
Before you can call dr. sober companion for help, you or someone who cares about you, needs to check you into a local rehab facility or one of our recommended rehab facilities.
As mentioned previously, We require you to be clean and sober for 30 days, before we can begin.
The natural transition from a rehab facility, back to your life should be with dr. sober companion, and not with AA or a 12 step related sponsor. The reason is, we need you free of all enablers.
The perfect way to prove to yourself and to us that you want our care is going first to a rehab facility.
While rehab facilities can give you the fundamentals you need to stay alive, they can make it feel like you are incarcerated and without freedom. While some rehab facilities are quick to take your money and even quicker, to throw you out for breaking their rules, we suggest you have a couple choices of rehab facilities, just in case, to help you get through the first 30 days, before calling dr. sober companion with the next stage of keeping you alive.
